Predictions on when the robocrate will be openable.
Hello one and all, I don't go onto the steam forums often, so here is one of the few times I might ever be on here. I think I have figured out when the robo crates will be openable. Notice that the crate number is 58. Also notice that the level of all the robo crates is 13. The robo crates started to be given in item drops on April the 25th. Now, can anyone tell me what is the date 13 days after April the 25th? (NOT including the 25th itself.) You, yes you in the blue shirt way in the abck. Why correct you are, sir! It's May the 8th, or 5/8. Looks a lot like 58, doesn't it? Seems to me like Valve is hinting at something significant, probably a major update, the robo-crate keys, or at least a teaser to a major update. Thank you for reading this and have a nice day one and all! Post your predictions below.

Also, just thought I'd mention this for those who never knew about it and as a reminder to those who have seen it about a month ago. http://www.teamfortress.com/lecturevalley/

I think it will be some time this week, actually. Crates like this are usually released about a week in advance of the keys.

True, I am confident in my prediction though. I am at least 75% sure that it will be May 8th.

I did think of that, but I seriously doubt that Valve would make it that easy.

Maybe they made it May 13th KNOWING you'd think it was too easy? xD
In all honesty, I don't care about the date. I just hope the keys come soon.

More information to back up the 5/8 theory, is that the 8th is a Wednesday, and what day do they release updates on 85% of the time? WEDNESDAY.

And what if Valve released the crate so that we think something big will happen and they continue adding hats?

The next update? Probably a new MvM map (Likely mvm_isolation), new weapons and cosmetics, updates to old weapons, and adding the Mecha update cosmetics to the drops.

Yeah, a lot of updates are realeased on Wednesday or Thursday it seems. That's what made this most reasonable IMO. May 13th is on a Monday.

Wait, didn't isolation win in a best custom mvm map contest? If so, then yeah, it probably will be that.

Speaking of cosmetics, did you guys hear about the robotic boogaloo? Looks pretty awesome, I hope they add at least some of those robot hats and miscs to the game.

Also, I looked back on the Mecha update. It seems that Bigrock COULD very well be a hat factory. In the shadow boxers comic, Soldier says "They'll attack the Mann Co. Facility at 20 Gravel Pit Road at precisely 1300 tomorrow." Considering that it looks about midday in Bigrock and that he says that as if it were a new place, specifically Bigrock, then what did spy mean by saying, "I will probably die at a hat factory tomorrow."? It seemed like he knew what soldier was talking about. Also, above where it says "NEW MvM MAP BIG ROCK" it shows several TVs on a control pannel, the middle one which has a Mecha engineer with the subtitles, "HATS, ALL YOUR HA_" as if it would have said more if it were possible to watch that video. So could it be that the robots have taken hats from Big Rock every time somebody loses on that map and turns them into robot hats?

Happy B-day, I think I know what Valve's gift will be for you.

Also, though I am new to youtube and have so far only posted 2 videos without sound (but decent otherwise) I am planning to post my robocrate predictions on youtube. This weekend.

What if the robocrates have items inside that make you look like your robo class counterpart?
If so, then we would need to add slots for head,body,legs and some extra thingy. But you can still wear the items without robo armor.
